The opportunity to register for our Fair Banding Assessment is now available to all parents of year 5 children who are moving into year 6 in Sept. 2022. By completing the assessment you have the opportunity to apply for a place for your child in September 2023. Assessments will take place in October 2022. Please complete the fair banding registration form now if you would like to register and be kept fully informed. Please note: the assessment is not a test and the score has no bearing on whether you are offered a place. However, all children applying to TAC must have sat the assessment for a chance of being offered a place.

As the situation in the Ukraine and Russia unfolds, we would like to do something as an academy to help.
Today we are launching a TAC Crisis Appeal so that we can raise much needed funds to support humanitarian groups working in Ukraine. If students/parents/carers would like to donate to this appeal, please visit ParentPay where you will be able to make a donation. If you would like to donate but do not have a ParentPay account then do not worry, we have another way for you to support.
Essential Items Collection
We are collecting essential items that are needed to support Ukrainian refugees. The items are due to be shipped to Poland in two weeks time. The list of items that we are collecting is below. If you would like to donate, please bring all items to Chaplaincy by Friday 11th March.
- First aid kits
- Energy bars
- Dried fruit
- Food that does not require cooking,
e.g. pot noodles
- Snacks for gluten-free and diabetics
- Baby milk in a liquid form already mixed
- Wet wipes
- Bottles with a dummy
- Pet food
Well done to Holly in Year 10 and Daniela in Year 8 for becoming TAC’s Youth Parliament candidates after a tough interview. Congratulations to the other 12 candidates who also showed passion for active citizenship and change for young people in Wakefield.
We have teamed up with Darling Reads in Horbury to build our library stock and provide wonderful reading opportunities and experiences for our young people. If you would like to help, you can choose to donate a specific sum of money, or choose one of the books on our wish-list and buy it for us. Darling Reads will then deliver the books to us and fill up our shelves!
Every day during advent, experience a new story, poem, song, dance or idea related to Christmas.
Cultural Advent Calendar
A small group of Year 10 students recently took part in the Jamie Peacock ‘Be a Champion’ 30 day wellbeing proframme. Click here to watch the video from the programme.
Thank you to Jamie Peacock and all the staff/students involved!
We have made the decision to close the site on Friday 15th January due to the forecast for very icy conditions after heavy snowfall. Many of our staff live a considerable distance away and the road conditions are going to be treacherous. Remote learning will take place over MS Teams for all students from 8.30am, with a number of live lessons and assignments for students to complete. We will open again on Monday 18th January for children who are currently attending with us and contribute with remote learning for all other students. Thank you for your support.
